National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Good day to all. My wife had her grandfathers collection in our basement for the past 5 years. Some dating back to the early 1900’s. They aren’t in perfect shape or anything but they are dry. Anyway the stack is huge and I need them gone. We are located in MA and want to give them away to anyone interested. We have many of the index catalog books as well. I’ve tried to donate them to senior centers, schools, and libraries with no luck. I’d hate to just throw them away. If interested please let me know. I like someone to take them all but even if you just need a few please come by. Thanks

Good Morning Samuel,
I am in the same situation with a collection and wondering what kind of response you have received from your post.

Rob Nelson


Please provide us some details.

Perhaps you'll take the time to look at your messages.


No reply’s. So the collection went to recycling. I felt bad but I’ve been trying to give these away for over two months.

Actually Samuel, I sent you a private message through messaging via "a friend request" that you never replied to.

I would have been interested in "some" of your collection had you taken the opportunity.


I apologize Mel I didn’t see any messages. I have gotten ride of the magazines from 80-till now. What specifically were you looking for? 

Please see the message accompanying the friend invite. I prefer to do any business privately. Thank you!


Please send me a list off any pre-1906 original editions of the magazine, Thank you.
